Summary

Patrick Dorismond, Abner Louima, and Amadou Diallo -- hear what a jury of prominent African Americans has to say about the black man's struggle for justice in America 
Prompted by the killing of Amadou Diallo and the acquittal of the four New York City police officers who mistook him for an armed criminal, this collection of essays by prominent black male writers offers twelve unique and startling perspectives on what it's like for a black man living in an inherently racist society. 
Coming from a broad spectrum of economic and social backgrounds, the poets, journalists, lawyers, writers, and academics that make up this jury write forcefully and eloquently about growing up and raising sons, identifying with others and yearning to be set apart, attempting reasonable discourse, and succumbing to unspeakable anger. Together these essays deconstruct the monolithic myths that shroud our nation's black men and offer small rays of hope that on the streets, at school and work, and in the courtroom justice will be served.

    12 Traits Of The Best Doctor 
    The Physician Self Help Book How to:   Improve The Medicine You Offer, 
     Reduce Your Stress, 
     Better Your Life, 
     Improve Your Success, 
     Give Better Patient Care 
    You went into medicine to help people, to be kind, to give solace, and to alleviate suffering. You were going to use your amazing brain and great caring heart to help people at their lowest point in their existence. 
    But then medical school ground you down, residency happened, then employment occurred -- and you've now been molded and torqued into something and someone you hardly recognize. 
    You personally might need, or maybe your office manager says you need 12 Traits Of The Best Doctor because now you find yourself seeing forty plus patients a day, before noon each day life pile-drives you to your knees, you almost always miss lunch, you love stressed beyond your capabilities, caught up in the sheer nightmare of the complexities of the insurance model of making money, dealing with potentially devastating HIPAA issues, and wondering how your life got so twisted by the harsh economics of medicine. 
    Let me untwist you. 
    Who am I? 
    My name is Dan Purser, I'm an MD who wrote a well received textbook on preventive medicine a few years back, and from that has spread twelve #1 bestselling books on Amazon. Also, while waiting for my books to rise to #1, I started and continue to operate seven successful companies (we do nutritional and supplement product development and manufacturing), plus I've had the incredible opportunity to speak to fans all over the planet (and am lucky enough now to get paid more for an eight hour day of speaking than most docs earn in a month), plus many other crazy successes. It might help to check out my website to learn more about me -- www.danpursermd.com 
    But save your mind, and your heart, and possibly your future, or maybe one of your children who are going into health care, or your spouse who’s a physician, or the doctor you work for when you purchase and (let them) read this paradigm shifting little book -- 12 Traits Of The Best Doctor.
